Maybe i read it wrong... but it appeared to critisize the government because the people that are in charge of deciding what grants to approve, are
appointees, that are chosen for thier political affiliation instead of intellegence or experience... and that the Bush administration has "given"
appointments as favors instead of rewards for achievment.
We need to have the best and the brightest in these appointments, or else we end up with money pit "star wars" type programs or Particle colliders
that could blow up the world without proper oversight.... Or even pet projects of the appointees themselves (a bad enough scandal itself),
instead of good progressive science that is for the good of mankind...
